Your doll will love curling up in this cute and cozy Papasan Chair ... the perfect addition to her bedroom, dorm room or recreation area!
This PDF project pattern includes beginner-level instructions to make a chair frame from CPVC pipe, as well as step-by-step photo instructions to create the round cushion on top. The cushion attaches to the frame using fabric tabs with hook-and-loop tape, which means you could make a variety of cushions to use with the same frame. Hand-sewn tufting adds realistic detail and helps shape the seat.
This project goes together easily for most beginners, making it a great option for those new to using PVC pipe or if you need a quick and easy gift for your favorite doll-lover!
